What's this?

Traditional Argentinian grilling is purely simple, basic seasonings that let the natural flavors of meat step up the plate, and a natural wood fire. The results are epic.


  • 1 Tablespoon garlic, crushed

  • 2 balsamic vinegar

  • 1 Teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1/2 Teaspoon black pepper

  • 1 Rack Beef Short Ribs, Argentine Cut

  • 1 Bunch flat leaf parsley

  • 1 Teaspoon cumin

  • 1 crushed red pepper

  • 2 Teaspoon kosher salt

  • 2 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar

  • 1/4 Cup olive oil

  • 1 Whole fresh lemon juice

  • 1/4 Cup beef broth


  • 1

    To begin, combine the garlic, vinegar, salt, and pepper to make a paste.
  • 2

    Spread the paste over the ribs and refrigerate for 1 hour. While the ribs are marinating, make the Chimichurri sauce.
  • 3

    Chimichurri Sauce: In a food processor or blender, pulse the parsley, cumin, red pepper, salt, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and lemon juice. Slowly add the olive oil; this should make a thick sauce. Refrigerate while ribs cook.
